Toyota Resumes Normal Production Levels in North America
It's no secret that Toyota has had to go through some challenges this year. The obvious big one being the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan earlier this year causing massive tragedy and disrupting supply lines for several companies including Toyota.
Fortunately, Toyota looks like its back on track to dominate the car industry. Production levels have finally hit normal levels in North America. Surprisingly, Japan reached 100 percent a few months after the earthquake, but production levels elsewhere weren't expected to recover until the end of this year.
The good news is a result of Toyota being able to get parts from their suppliers a lot quicker than originally anticipated allowing for a full recovery of production levels.
All of this means good things for Lustine Toyota as Toyota can now help us boost our inventory levels giving you, the customer, an even greater selection of vehicles to choose from in the Woodbridge, VA area.
Currently, Toyota manufactures a total of 12 cars, CUVs and trucks in North America.
